Overview

Beethoven’s deep love of nature inspired his 6th Symphony, and he famously said this work was “more an expression of feeling than painting.” Be swept away to the countryside as you hear musical scenes depicting the calls of birds near a brook, a peasant’s dance, a thunderstorm, and a shepherd’s prayer.  In contrast, Ink Dark Moon, a guitar concerto by British concert, stage, and screen composer Joby Talbot blends "the magical with the dangerously dark...with sparing hints of funk, folk and pop occasionally creeping in."
